Yard Warz: The Online Auction Site for Buying and Selling in Bulk

While there are auction-based websites available today, many of them offer single item sales only.

Baltimore, MD, August 13, 2012 - While there are auction-based websites available today, many of them offer single item sales only. The limited number of sites that do provide bulk sales only allow a purchase to go through at a predetermined price. And until recently, there was a gap in the market whereby individuals and businesses could post all of their items, from a garage sale, yard sale, business liquidation sale and more, as one unit in an auction.

Now there’s Yard Warz, a true auction-based site providing an easy-to-use, hassle-free service to buy and sell bundled merchandise where the final sale goes to the highest bidder. This gives buyers the opportunity to compete for great deals while sellers can earn top-dollar. Yard Warz does have a section for selling individual items for those who don’t have a bundle to sell. However, the site focuses primarily on selling bulk items, such as all items in a yard sale, business liquidation sale, and storage units, as a single item.

Yard Warz was inspired by the popular reality TV shows that have captured thousands of individuals and business owners bidding on bulk merchandise. After watching the show for months, Yard Warz creators and brothers, John and James Black, noticed that there were often many more bidders than there were storage units available. This led to them to think of options those buyers could utilize to offset units they lost to other bidders. This led to the idea that a yard sale could be looked at as a storage unit, without the four walls.

“There are thousands of yard, moving, garage, and liquidation sales across the country every day…our website caters to anyone who likes to buy in volume and those who want to liquidate merchandise by simply taking a photo and filling out some basic information,” said James Black, Managing Partner at Yard Warz.

Starting August 21st, the auction site will be running a promotion through the end of September that allows any new registered user who creates a listing of merchandise for sale to upgrade to a "Featured Listing" at no charge. Additionally, final sale commissions will be reduced from 10% to 5% no matter when the item sells, as long as the listing is created prior to September 30th. Items posted on the Yard Warz site will receive additional promotions through the company’s marketing channels to help increase exposure.

Yard Warz is a true online auction site designed specifically for people and businesses who have new, like-new, or usable items for sale and want to sell them in bulk to the highest bidder. For more information, go to the Yard Warz website at: or to speak with James Black, call (443) 880-1868.

Zeek Rewards out of business

Dozens of people arrived at the company's headquarters throughout the afternoon on Thursday, only to find locked doors and confusion.

Provo, Utah, August 16, 2012 - Zeek Rewards out of business.

Paul Burks, chief executive officer of Rex Venture Group, could not be reached for comment. Dr. Clifton Jolley, the company's media representative, also could not be reached.

Details about the closing were conflicting on Thursday.

Dozens of people arrived at the company's headquarters throughout the afternoon on Thursday, only to find locked doors and confusion. The Dispatch spoke to about eight different people gathered outside at about 5 p.m., all of whom refused to comment on the situation.

One man, who said he was speaking on behalf of Zeek but wished to remain anonymous, said the building was being closed so Zeek could answer inquiries from the Attorney General, made in the form of a Civil Investigative Demand (CID). According to N.C. General Statutes, a CID is an administrative subpoena that can be issued by the Attorney General whenever there is reason to believe a person, or entity, has information that is relevant to an ongoing investigation.

The Attorney General's office could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
A Zeek Rewards affiliate, who refused to give his name, said he went to the company's headquarters at about 3 p.m. to conduct business, only to find the sign on the door stating the business was closed.

The affiliate said a Zeek employee changed the locks on the doors. He watched as another employee exited the back door, carrying a box full of office supplies, he said.

According to company officials, has more than 200,000 retail bidders, domestic and abroad. It's unclear how many affiliates actually use Zeek Rewards, despite online reports that claim the number exceeds 700,000.

This is why I chose not to work with Zeek Rewards and chose to work with a solid company called Sisel International. I can show anyone how to go to a 6 figure residual income in 6 weeks with Sisel’s comp plan. Contact me at 815-980-0664 my cell or via email my team site is
